Yokogawa Electric Corporation’s subsidiary, Yokogawa India Ltd., has signed a contract to supply Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board (BWSSB) with a supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) system for its Centralized SCADA Monitoring Center. The system will monitor the city’s water distribution network and wastewater facilities.

This is Yokogawa’s first order from a water municipality in India, and this project is being funded by the Japan International Cooperation Agency.

The SCADA system will monitor all data from BWSSB water supply facilities, such as water treatment plants, pumping stations, reservoirs, and a water supply network that brings water 150 km from the Cauvery River to the city of Bangalore. It will also monitor data from all wastewater treatment facilities.

The system will be introduced for the water supply facilities in May 2015, and its coverage will then be expanded to include the wastewater treatment facilities.

For this project, Yokogawa will deliver the FAST/TOOLS SCADA software and the STARDOM network-based control system. Yokogawa India will have overall responsibility for implementing this project, including engineering, installation, and commissioning of software and instruments.
